NeoOffice allows you to number the lines of your document in several ways. You may want to restart the numbering at the beginning of certain paragraphs, or groups of paragraphs, or you may want to exclude some paragraphs from numbering altogether.

[edit] Line Numbering

  • Go to the Tools menu and choose Line Numbering….
  • In the Line Numbering window that opens, check the Show numbering box.
  • Choose the options you wish, especially the Interval.
  • Click OK.

[edit] Line Numbering in Groups of Paragraphs

  • Number the lines of the document by applying the method described above.
  • Click at the beginning of the group of paragraphs where you want to number the lines without selecting these paragraphs.
  • Go to the Format menu and choose Paragraph….
  • In the Paragraph window, click on the Numbering tab.
  • In the Numbering section, check the Include this paragraph in the numbering and Restart at this paragraph boxes.
  • Set the option Start with to 1.
  • Click OK.
The lines are now numbered from 1 at the beginning of the document to x at the beginning of this group of paragraphs, then from 1 at the beginning of this group of paragraphs to … at the end of the document.
  • Now click at the start of the second group of paragraphs, again without selecting them, and apply the method described above.
The line numbering restarts at 1 at the beginning of this group or paragraphs and continues until the end of the document.
  • Apply this method until the end of the document.
If you want to exclude a paragraph or a group of paragraphs from numbering, uncheck the Include this paragraph in the numbering box.
